The Connecticut Warbler was found on the west side of park just north of the baseball field.Walk through the spruce grove and head towards the west side viewing platform. You will see the large boulder and Handicap parking sign. I would check the spruce grove and the area east and west of the original area where I spotted it.
Penny Solum had a possible glimpse when she showed up just after I saw it. Good luck!
Lots of warblers in that area and the spruce grove this morning.

>Not sure where Sherwood Ball Field is. Where is nearest legal parking to area? Is this on the West side big hill with open fields? Any further clues would be helpful, may spend this afternoon trying to relocate CT Warb.

>> Sherwood Island SP- CT Warbler seen near handicap parking sign and large boulder just north of the baseball field. First seen low in the dense dark green bushy tree and then walking on the ground moving right and then in the low brushy area in front of large deciduous tree. It seemed to be moving right with all the other warblers in that area.
